The damage control team is in full force in explaining away Obama�s boorish behavior in threatening SCOTUS. So out comes good ol� Larry Tribe who famously lost his biggest case before SCOTUS when his side wanted to continue the re-count of Florida chads that gave G.W. Bush the election over Al Gore.
Washington Wire reports constitutional law scholar Laurence Tribe, a Harvard Law School professor and former mentor to President Barack Obama, said the president �obviously misspoke� earlier this week when he made comments about the Supreme Court possibly overturning the health-care law.
Mr. Tribe, who calls the president was one of his best students, said in an interview: �He didn�t say what he meant�and having said that, in order to avoid misleading anyone, he had to clarify it.�
Mr. Tribe said he saw no reason for the president to express his views on the matter, because everyone already knows he wants the case upheld.
�I don�t think anything was gained by his making these comments and I don�t think any harm was done,� Mr. Tribe said, �except by public confusion.�
Isn�t Obama a grown man? Does he really need this much help to have a coherent thought on judicial review? Can we see his college transcripts already?
